This month has been a bit hectic to say the least. October is regarded to as ‘birthday month’ in our household, and as such is a whole mixture of joy, happiness, stress, depression, and despair depending on the age being celebrated. Or perhaps commiserated in some cases! It all kicks off on the 7th with Holly’s birthday, then it’s my Dad’s on the 11th, followed my mine on the 17th and lastly my Mum’s on the 20th. Even my lovely late Grandma’s was also on the 15th!! So as you can see, it’s pretty darned busy! And generally expensive too… View Post

Yay! You’ve heard me banging on for I don’t know how many weeks now, and finally, we’re at a stage where the vast majority of work has happened, so I can show you the new kitchen space we are living in. And oh my, what a complete and utter change it’s made from the separate kitchen and dining room it was before (read here).

But seriously, it’s just the most adorable little guy (I think it’s a boy) and I just wanted to pick it up and give it a big cuddle. So I did! Anyway, moving on swiftly from there! Basically to say I’d been a little excited for the week was a bit… View Post

So, following the first update, here we move on to the second. After returning from holiday and on seeing the kitchen for the first time after a whole two weeks away, I must admit, it was a bit of a shock. There were bits that were good and then there were elements that were not quite so good. I suppose things weren’t helped by the fact I was probably a little on the grumpy side to begin with!  On the way home from Gatwick we were stuck in traffic for what seemed like hours, the kids were moaning about being hungry… View Post

If you’ve read a previous post of mine, you will know how much it meant to me to finally get the appropriate use from our little kitchen table, having had it bumped up against the back kitchen wall for such a long time, and pretty much using it as a general dumping ground for anything we hadn‘t quite got round to finding homes for. As such, you can probably imagine my excitement that we are finally creating our perfect new family living space, where we hope to have countless family meals, to hold social occasions for friends and maybe even… View Post
